Format: Hardcover
Our library just obtained a copy of this new book. The text follows an unprecedented approach to teaching the subject, see the well explained Amazon book description. Early readers and learners of transport phenomena might have wondered how the partial differential vector/tensor equations found in Bird's BSL1 (the 'red bible') could be implemented with today's computers in order to solve simplified problems of practical interest. Other readers might ask themselves how theoretically found solutions of transport PDE's, in equation format plus 2-D graphical sketch format, can be verified or reproduced by numerical methods, e.g. through programming a complex code in MATLAB. Here comes Plawsky's into play: It bridges the gap between theory-only books (BSL1; Slattery) and numerical-only books ('computational transport phenomena', by Schiesser, Shyy, et al.) by using the super user-friendly coupled transport phenomena solver COMSOL, a commercial academic software simulation package which integrates all the latest numerical methods drawn from mathematics journals and interacts with the PC user in form of GUI-customizable partial differential vector/tensor equations to be manipulated.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
This textbook has such incredibly bad organization of material that it seems the author just decided to cram whatever he know about anything into a book. Lots of equations were given without ever explaining the derivation, significance or even defining the variables, this book is so bad in every way that not even the professor would recommend using this book as a source of information.

And one more thing, the physical binding came loose the on second day of use, pages flew out like snow flakes.

This textbook contains various errors in the book that make it a difficult book to learn from. Numerous equations are incorrect.

In terms of layout, there are no chapter labels on pages within a chapter. In order to tell which chapter you are in, you have to search through a few pages until you come upon the beginning of a chapter section. Overall poorly designed, though I do like the inclusion of a table listing all variables used in the text and their corresponding units.
